GL! \o/It's merely a response, not a promise, but good nonetheless. I think it deserves its own thread for awareness' sake.

Edit: I just wanted to add this second post from Sapience to the list, for clarity.It's a topic we've kept an eye on, but have not responded to for a number of reasons. primarily is that we've seen people report this falsely in an attempt to grief others and turn GMs into a weapon to use against other players. Tracking and proving actually exploits is not as easy as most may think. We're also very aware that often times PvMP players enact their own 'code of conduct' that doesn't match with ours.
As an example, when some servers started hosting 1v1 fights where other's weren't allowed to interfere the number of reports of 'fight clubbing' and 'rank farming' went through he roof. However, it really wasn't. Should we have banned an action we didn't intend, but that were not actually rank farming and cheating? Probably not.
But to your current qestion, and that thread, we are looking at ways to track those who are taking advantage of this system in ways we did not intend. Once we have that in place we will start to take a look at appropriate action to take against those players. And yes, very lengthy and possibly lifetime bans are a very real possibility.

let me be clear, since already my comments are being expanded upon and taken out of context. I said we are investigating ways to track certain behaviours. Action is still a ways off. Though we have not taken any possible action off the table once we have a reliable means of proving players performed certain actions.
So let's not jump the gun or go beyond what I actually said.
